Aims of Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy


The central theme of the Jubilee is the saying taken from the Gospel of St. Luke (6:36):

“Be merciful just as your Father is merciful” (see Bull of Indiction, 13). The Jubilee, therefore, has three aims (see Bull, 8 – 12, 16, 25):
1. to contemplate the merciful face of Jesus Christ
2. to have a personal experience of the Mystery of God’s Mercy
3. to proclaim God’s Mercy by word and deed
